Bradley Cooper is set to star as a rookie cop in The Place Beyond the Pines, opposite Ryan Gosling.
According to Variety, Cooper will be the cop tailing pro motorcycle rider (Gosling) who robs banks to support his newborn son. Gosling's Blue Valentine director Derek Cianfrance will take on this new project, reuniting the duo.
Cooper proved he was a box office success and critically acclaimed movie star when he fronted the very successful Limitless earlier this year.
It will be interesting to see Cooper in another drama -- as he is mostly known for his comedic roles.
